Open Day in May

The May 1st celebration is cancelled. However, don’t fret, as there will be an Open Day and Picnic in May for subscribers to Bealtaine Cottage Good Life.

The event will be posted, with a week’s notice (to avail of good weather). Subscribers who register for this event will be able to bring friends and family free!

Trees in the pond garden at Bealtaine CottageMost of you are familiar with Bealtaine Cottage.

Bealtaine Cottage is FREE to all, as it has been for the past five years.  

With over 1,000 blogs and 4,500+ photographs, Bealtaine Cottage continues as a FREE to access website.

As a way of supporting the work of Bealtaine Cottage, there is now a second website… Bealtaine Cottage Good Life.

Bealtaine Cottage Good Life is 12 euros per year for full access and supports the work of Bealtaine Cottage in all other media, listed below…

DSC08011The paid subscription website, Bealtaine Cottage Good Life allows you to support my work in return for some extra special blogs and photographs…and allows me a small, but much needed, income.

Yes, I have a mortgage and some bills to meet each month and this is my only source of income. The free website, Bealtaine Cottage, has almost reached maximum capacity at 97.8% of 13 GB allowance at a cost of 199 Euros per year. Bealtaine Cottage Good Life has the same 13 GB allowance, but with only 18% used, so you can see why I now publish new blogs on Bealtaine Cottage Good Life! My total expenditure on both sites and internet maintenance now exceeds 700 Euros.

I will continue to write about, and photograph, Mother Earth whether you subscribe/donate or not…but I so appreciate those who do!
…blessings to all XXX Colette

“The poetry of the earth is never dead.” – John Keats

019

Amid much conflict in the world, austerity, unemployment and strife, the seamless story of Mother Earth moves across the landscape.

020

In these days of early Spring in the west of Ireland, her joyfulness plays out in the changing earth beneath our feet, as sap pushes up stems and trunks, thickening buds as it moves the life force skywards.

021

Earlier mornings, filled with birdsong.

Hens back laying eggs.

Sunshine and showers.

There is a deep sense of an Ode to Joy!

022

The world of man is in chaos…and always has been in one form or another.

Yet, here in Nature, Great Mother Nature, time continues in an almost unaltered way.

023

I say “almost,” because, of course, Mother earth has been greatly harmed by Mankind.

Today, I do not want to write about that, but instead invoke a little of the joy that is manifesting around us all.

The earth, here in the northern hemisphere, is inviting us all to a long party.

The doors have opened, the dance has begun!

024

The brown mantle of winter is now cast aside and the greening has begun.

Already there are lambs in the fields and Catkins emerging on Willow.

There are no tickets to be bought for this party…all is free!

You are even allowed to take things away from the party and bring them home…flowers, Catkins, sunshine, food and even music.

Open your doors and windows to the music…it is magical music indeed!

025

Mother Earth holds no fear…she sings despite the wars.

006

Mother Earth is not impoverished…she keeps giving despite austerity.

010

Mother Earth cares not for politicians or governments…she will not be governed or subdued.

012

Mother Earth knows no religion, for she is the great Creatrix.

Bring nothing but joy!
